New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 6.6
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200703-04 (Mozilla Firefox: Multiple vulnerabilities)
An attacker could entice a user to view a specially crafted web page that will trigger one of the vulnerabilities, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code. It is also possible for an attacker to spoof the address bar, steal information through cache collision, bypass the local files protection mechanism with pop-ups, or perform cross-site scripting attacks, leading to the exposure of sensitive information, like user credentials.
